Album Notes
We\'d like to tell you that we write our songs in an abandoned airplane hangar, just to account for all the echoing, but that would be very untrue and a little fanciful. Instead, most of the songwriting occurs in the wee hours of the morning, travelling on a shivering bus to nowhere important. Because we are without sleep, we are well-acquainted with the mysterious feeling the city leaves you with when you walk out to the empty streets at 6am with the first few cars quietly puffing along.

A layered mix of percussive gloom that rocks
The quintessential tune for The Airfields on its “laneways” ep is “Tracks in the Snow,” which layers strumming guitars, wistful vocals, and crisp percussion into a melancholy seamless concoction that manages to rock along pretty well. The same can be said for the opening cut “Nowhere Left to Go” with its even-dreamier singing matched by plucked electric guitars and swirling keyboards. Only “Red Fox” slows the mix of percussive gloom into something of a ballad, a dreary one of course. “Lonely Halls” and “Imaginary Stars” are more the standard, a driving beat surrounded by quivery guitars, echoing vocals, and stirring keyboards. The lyrics don’t matter as much as getting the right sound.
